A Peek Inside The Blake & Bull Gates And Railings Workshop

'Thank you Marcus and the team for our railings which were fitted on Tuesday.
We are very pleased with them and have had some good comments from the neighbours. Once again thank you very much.' Roger 

 

A rare peek at the 'before' stage of an installation. Roger invited us to create a bespoke handrail to make access easier to and from the path, up the steps to the front door. 

Ramps railings handrails for access to property bespoke and handmade in the UKCall me a metal geek but I love seeking carefully thought out features like the scalloping on the foot.

This is the 'pre-glav' stage, where the welds are finished, linished and hidden {where possible} to ensure that the finished article meets our exacting standards.

Linishing involves the careful grinding back of sharp points, and the smoothing of welds at corner joins.

Galvanisation is the treatment process where the railings are dipped in their entirety into a tank of zinc. A process that goes back around 150 years, it is an integral part of the process and ensures a heirloom installation, railings that your grand children can lean on with a cuppa! The zinc is layered on, about the thickness of a sheet of A4 paper, adding its own character but mainly resilience to rust and corrosion.
